Larisa Iordache Undergoes Achilles Repair Surgery, Positive About Recovery

Larisa Iordache Undergoes Achilles Repair Surgery, Positive About Recovery
After rupturing her Achilles tendon at the 2017 Gymnastics World Championships in Montreal, Larisa Iordache underwent surgery upon returning home to Romania.

Her injury was equal parts shocking and heartbreaking; the incident happened just minutes before women's qualifications as she was warming up a pass of back handsprings on floor. The 21-year-old had to withdraw from the competition and end her dream of world all-around gold before getting to salute even one routine.



Iordache looks to be in good spirits, and she posted on Twitter today about her successful surgery:


Family and friends came to show their love and support:



We're wishing Larisa a speedy and full recovery!
